Celebration of Life Week: Baby Shower Board by Postcards & Pretties!

Please welcome the lovely Chris, from P & P! If you know her blog, you probably love it as much as I do. If not, hope you check it out! She has such a talent for creating beautiful inspiration boards. When she sent this over to share, I about cried! One of my favorite children's books ever....

Greetings IHOD readers!! 
Chris here from Postcards & Pretties and I'm so excited to be here while Anna is away on maternity leave. To celebrate the birth of baby Liesemeyer, I wanted to create a baby shower board inspired by one of my favorite children's book The Tale of Peter Rabbit.  I love the idea of using classic stories such as this one for baby showers, it works so well for both boy or girl.  For this garden celebration have your guest pick their own escort card in "Mr. McGregor's garden" and have them snacking on crudités and other light bites.   
{Colors} orange, pale blue, green & yellow

Thank you so much for having me here today, Anna!

    this is a splendid first edition for the guest post series while Anna is off nurturing her darling Veronica! i really love your take on that classic, beloved story and also think it's really cool how you themed around a book in the first place. i like that idea a lot! you have such a flair for complimentary focal points. it's been a pleasure to view this motif. ♥
